GTK2 Themes

Description:

It is time to give a modern and professional look to our desktop! The new theme makes more clever use of orange (not over-use it) and is mainly color-neutral. It is designed for Ubuntu in mind but can be used in other distros that may bear warm colors.


Installation: (requires pixbuf theme engine)
Very simple. Just double click the file newwave-(xxx).gtp where (xxx) is the version number e.g. 050. Note that if you have previous version of the theme in your home folder you need to remove it first. You may need to log out then log in to make all changes appear (e.g. handlers, lines). For more information on how to fix Firefox's menubar text and how to use the theme in root programs see the README file.


Extras:
The package also contains:
- New Wave Configurator (GUI),
- Emerald themes,
- Compiz-fusion settings,
- Second theme with dark menus,
- Firefox skin,
- Some metacity tweaks.
- Time applet tips.
Theme for xfwm4 (Xubuntu) can be downloaded in the Download section of this page.

Well this is not fatal because it is warning. What version of new wave are you using because in the latest one all the warnings are fixed but that with the gradient? I'm still searching its source.

Oh! I didn't see that you just updated it...today apparently =)

The new one only gives errors about the gradient, as you said.

I like the new window borders hover effect! Thank you for your work; it is a blessing to me =)

Hi,

I like your theme a lot. especially your metacity-theme.

on the ubuntu-artwork-site i found this:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Incoming/Intrepid/DustTheme

i like it a lot, but i think your metacity-theme would make it perfect. at the moment your metacity is to bright to fit to dust. so could you make a darker one that fits exactly to the dust-theme-color? that would be very cool! the orange when you slide over your metacity-buttons could be a bit darker then. pleeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaseeeeee make one for dust!!! pleaaaaseee!!!
thank yoooooooouuuuuuuuuu

Will see what I can do about it but probably the creators of Dust would like to do that. I will give them my metacity theme with pleasure.

Is there a DEB package of the New Wave engine?

Report

New Wave is using pixmap engine now because customizing its own would be too difficult and would not be available to everybody. So the source code for that experimental engine I wrote is obsolete and should not be considered at all.

I hope will continue on the Elementary Ubuntu icons, like them better than Tangerine.

Tangerine is a temporary solution for now because the Elementary Ubuntu are still under development and not easy to download.

Reverting back to Elementary because tangerine are too old.

When you put the mouse over the banshee icon in the notification area, it shows the song being played, but the background looks bad, looks like just take the gnome panel background as his own background.

after a restart, my whole gnome-panel is light grey. Is this intended? The screen shots still show it as dark grey

No it is not intended. Try to download the theme from here and install it over the current one:

The only problem I'm having is that the list of tomboy notes is a light gray list with slightly darker gray text.

Thanks for the feedback.
You should report that as a bug in the Gnome's bugzilla though. All other programs work fine even inside the Tomboy's menu if you point to Notebooks the submenu is using the correct colors.

Very nice screenshots - but the theme is crashing the Appearance manager (segfault) and gtk elements are not themed. Any ideas?

Report

dilomo

Hmmm ...

Can you describe what did you do to install the theme step by step?

1. Download
2. Extract where?
3. ....

What is the OS you are using and what version it is?

If you have launchpad account you could report the bug here:

Bug posted - it seems it happened because I installed the theme only to my /usr/share/themes folder. It was resolved by installing it to my home folder as well (by dropping the archive into Appearance Preferences).
